The milestone sees DC Two’s software, cloud platform, and data centres achieve International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 27001:2013 certification.
DC Two says the recognition will not only enhance its reputation but also presents new opportunities, especially in the public sector.
“Achieving the ISO 27001 certification is an important step in our ongoing security efforts. It demonstrates we are employing practice solutions which will enhance our ability to secure new enterprise opportunities, especially in sensitive, regulated, and public sectors,” says DC Two managing director Justin Thomas.
The ISO 27001 certification is one of the most stringent international certifications and confirms that information security controls and other forms of risk treatment are well-positioned to detect and defend against potential data system vulnerabilities.
DC Two’s certification was granted after the completion of a series of formal audits performed by inspection, verification and testing organisation, Bureau Veritas.
The certification demonstrates that DC Two has identified the risks, assessed the implications, and enacted systemised controls to limit any damage to the organisation.
Bibra Lake Facility, DC Two’s Tier 3 accredited data centre, is also nearing its completion. The new facility, DC Two says, will be its flagship premises and the new base of operations.
DC Two is also re-applying for Tier III accreditation, which will help secure government contracts and mid-market and enterprise customers requiring Tier III compliance, security and access accreditations.
DC Two claims it is on track to become the only company in Western Australia with an Uptime Institute accredited Tier III data centre and ISO 27001 ISMS accredited cloud platform.
